Hanseatic Changes Name To SilverYachts
Published: Wednesday, 19 February 2014
Western Australian superyacht builder Hanseatic Marine has announced a re-branding, new logo, website and new build projects under the brand SilverYachts.
“The SilverYachts name has been aptly chosen to capture the company’s impressive achievements and success to date with the multiple award-winning Silver Series of sleek, high performance superyachts designed by the world renowned Espen Oeino,” says Owner Guido Krass. “Built in Australia, SilverYachts vessels are a testament to the professional talents of the company, boasting the highest level of performance, fuel efficiency, Northern European luxury craftsmanship and outfitting.“
SilverYachts is constructing the much-anticipated 77m SilverFast (pictured) due for launch early next year. SilverFast follows the success of predecessors 73.5m Silver, 73.5m SilverZwei and 77m Smeralda.
“SilverFast blends the latest style, speed and performance, impressive long-range cruising capabilities and a top speed anticipated at close to 30 knots. With a predicted range of 4,500 nautical miles at 18 knots cruising speed, SilverFast will reinforce the extraordinary and well proven fuel efficient credentials of the Silver Series that is characterised by lightweight aluminium construction,” says Krass.
Work is underway on the company’s fifth superyacht project. The 83m SilverLoft is the latest brainchild of Espen Oeino and SilverYachts, based on their entirely new, most advanced hull and engineering platform to date. Extensive R&D, design refinement and tank testing has shown even further gains in the level of performance, sea keeping and fuel efficiency in the SilverYachts fleet.
“Re-branding as SilverYachts is an exciting and strategic change that highlights and aligns our company image to our success with the Silver Series of superyachts we have produced to date,” says Krass. “Brand SilverYachts clarifies our product in the market, setting a clear course for the future as we continue to innovate and push the boundaries of style, performance, engineering and craftsmanship.”
